Oregon Fur Farm Reports Trespassers

Dec 22, 2013

The 23rd in a series of leaked Fur Commission "security alerts" Animal Liberation Frontline is posting this month.

Background: Animal Liberation Frontline has obtained dozens of internal fur industry "security alerts." These bulletins are sent to fur farmers via email and fax every time there is a "security" related issue affecting US fur farms. The subject matter can range from trespassers being chased from farms, to unpublicized details of ALF raids, to farmers sharing license plate numbers of "suspicious vehicles."

These are intended to be read by fur farmers only, and were not intended to be read by the general public. I will be posting approximately 30 bulletins over the next month.

Read a full background on this series here.
